Hospital Admission

Sometimes a trip to the ER means a stay in a hospital. If that happens when you’re visiting one of our 24 Hour Emergency Care centers, one of our staff members will handle those arrangements for you. As a department of Rio Grande Regional, direct admission to our main campus by ambulance is quick and simple. Our nurse's even call ahead to share information about your condition and history with the main hospital ER team so they are ready when you arrive.

Call 9-1-1 for an Emergency

For all emergency situations, call 9-1-1. Never attempt to drive yourself to the hospital. 

Always call 9-1-1 or have someone else drive you to the hospital.

Letting an EMS provider take you to the hospital in an ambulance is safer in certain emergencies, such as stroke or heart attack. The emergency medical technicians (EMT) can send vital information to the hospital during transport, resulting in faster treatment and diagnosis once you arrive. And ambulances don’t get stuck in traffic.

If you have any questions about our emergency services, call the ER department at Rio Grande Regional Hospital at (956) 632-6443.
